CHURCHES TOGETHER IN HEATHFIELD & DISTRICT
Prayer Booklet for 10th June 2019 – 17th September 2019
We hold all our churches in CTH&D in our prayers, and, in particular, some churches have shared highlights or asked for specific prayer needs below.
Please copy this prayer booklet for your congregation.
All Saints’ Church, Waldron with St. Bartholomew’s Church, Cross-in-Hand (Church of England)
Benefice of Heathfield (Church of England): www.heathfieldbenefice.org.uk
All Saints’ Church, Old Heathfield
St. George’s Church, Burwash Road, Broad Oak
St. Richard’s Church, Upper Station Road, Heathfield
We look forward in the Benefice to welcoming our new curate: Torhild Fikseaunet and her family who join us from Norway later this month. A number of our parishioners will be attending Torhild’s ordination in Chichester Cathedral on 29th June, and we will be celebrating her arrival on 30th June at our Benefice service in All Saints that morning.
We ask for prayer as our Mission Action Plan team works towards the presentation of this detailed plan and direction for the future of the Benefice to our PCCs on 18th June.
We pray for, and would love you to join us for, St Richard’s Summer Festival on 15th June 1030-3.30pm with music, refreshment, crafts, stalls and children’s games.
As part of a wider visit to the deanery, we are pleased to welcome Bishop Richard to Heathfield Benefice and especially delighted that he will be presiding and preaching at St Richard’s on St Richard’s Day, 16th June 1030am. The Bishop will also be leading Morning Prayer in the Benefice on Wednesday 19th June (9am at St Richard’s) and Friday 21st June (9am at St George’s). He will also be making a visit to Wealden Works! to see first hand the great work they are doing there and to meet some of the young people with whom they are working.
We ask for prayer for the organisers, volunteer helpers and children who will be at Showstoppers 2019, which will be held in All Saints and St Richards Primary School 29th July to 2nd August.
